South Africa does fantasy.
This missive just in from Thomas Bulpin down in Sith Ifrica (our best SA accent)...
'Fantasy is not promoted very much in South Africa, so this is our attempted to give the readers of fantasy and sci fi something to enjoy and introduce new fantasy readers to some great reading material and authors.
We are planning an event in August and September called the Fantasy Feast. We have over 40 author on promotion. Where if a customer buys any of the authors books during the 2 month event will receive a bookplate to stick in the novel. Terry Brookes, Trudi Canavan, David Brin, Nial Gaiman, Tad Williams and more are included in the promotion..
We also have an official signed Terry Brooks and Tad Williams books as some of our raffle prizes for the 2 month event. Every fantasy book purchase during the event gives the customer a complementary fantasy magazine and entry into our instore raffle.
If any fans from overseas would like to buy some bookplated fantasybooks, they are more then welcome to email in to firstname.lastname@example.org'
